Most widely held works by Philip Ward-Jackson
Public sculpture of the city of London by Philip Ward-Jackson( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the financial capital of the British Empire, the City commissioned imposing statues of those who had made it what it was. More surprising is the wealth of architectural sculpture, including the friezes of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, the most important of the 'New Sculpture'
The passions of Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux by James David Draper( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827-1875) was an extraordinarily gifted sculptor, the greatest in 19th-century France before Rodin, and embodied the emotionally charged artistic climate of his era ... Carpeaux's wrenching representations of human forms, shown in beautiful color details and illustrations, echo his turbulent personal life, fraught with episodes of violence and fatal illness. The book covers the entire span of Carpeaux's career, and includes the masterpiece Ugolino and His Sons, newly discovered drawings, and a number of rarely seen or studied works. Previously unpublished letters between Carpeaux and his family and friends, a wealth of archival material, and the most detailed chronology of the artist's life ever published."--Yale University Press website
Impressionists in London : French artists in exile 1870-1904 by Cécilie Champy-Vinas( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London: French Artists in Exile charts the story of the French artists who took refuge in London during and after the devastating Franco-Prussian War and the Paris Commune. Following these traumatic events there was a creative flourish in London as the exiles responded to British culture and social life -- regattas, processions, parks, and of course the Thames. The book contains texts from a range of leading writers, drawing out key figures and events from this remarkable period to reveal the artists' connections with patrons, art dealers and British artists. It looks in detail at the contribution they made to British art and art education, as well as the impact their cross-Channel experiences had on French art. "--

The colour of sculpture, 1840-1910 by Andreas Blühm( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sculpture is commonly associated with the three dimensions of volume, while color is claimed as the exclusive means of expression for painters. However, polychromy was widely used in sculpture from the Middle Ages to the Baroque and beginning in 1814, there was a renewed interest in antique polychromy. Its effect in sculpture became visible several decades later. This book sheds light on this neglected aspect and leads to a better understanding of the art of the period in general. The volume includes works by Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Jean-Leon Gerome, Auguste Rodin and many others

Public sculpture of historic Westminster by Philip Ward-Jackson( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a survey of the outdoor statuary in the area of London where national government is conducted and which includes a large proportion of what is known as the 'West End'. It excludes only those sculptures which were conceived as integral to buildings, for which a separate volume is planned, and covers predominantly commemorative monuments to royalty and politicians, war memorials, fountains and works of art placed in the street for public enjoyment. For each work there are one or more illustrations and catalogue details. In the case of commemorations of individuals, the brief biography preceding the entry focusses on the achievements celebrated. The entries themselves provide blow-by-blow accounts of how individual works came to be erected, with particular emphasis on the selection of artist and site. These histories are accompanied by surveys of contemporary and later critical responses, and some account of the work's "afterlife" and conservation history, particularly where any significant change has been made to the work. The introduction addresses general issues of policy on commemoration and attitudes to the beautification of the metropolis. In the process instances of royal intervention, and the adaptation of bureaucratic structures within national and local government to conserve and promote public art, along with relevant legislation, are explored. The use of Parliament Square, Trafalgar Square and the Victoria Embankment as sites for commemoration is discussed in sections within the topographical survey, and brief biographies of sculptors and architects are included at the end of the volume

The inventory of King Henry VIII by David Starkey( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume II: Textiles and Dress is the first of three volumes of commentary to be published. This volume focuses on Henry VIII's collection of textiles and tapestries, which was one of the finest in Europe, reflecting Henry's vision of his standing in the world and the enormous resources he could command. Among the subjects covered in the volume are the lavish tents that provided the settings for court entertainments and the costumes worn by the revellers and players; an account of the Great Wardrobe, which served as a warehouse for the King's large and valuable stores of textiles, and a study of the vestments and textiles associated with the rituals of courtly worship. Altogether, the essays in this volume combine the histories of material culture, religion, politics and ceremony in a unique wav that would not have been possible before the establishment of the Inventory Project twenty years ago
